when I did dedicated threads for preshot,midshot,weaponskill,and utility sets, my intent was to steer conversation away from this sticky as the original author no longer maintains it and didn't pass along any editing rights to the likes of a Verda or something back then. Now we have people asking for posted sets that are still BiS but in other threads. Do a quick search of the subforum Ranger.

Was bored looking and decided to look thru the .dats of the new weapons today and found an archery DynamisD model in the new folder

I'm really curious about it. Did they make the model then discard the weapon entirely, or perhaps they are gonna introduce some sort of "morph" weapon mechanic (of course they are not)? Currently RNG's dyna weapon is a (lame) crossbow.
There's a ranged WS in the dats for both Archery and Marksmanship that aren't used by the player but are apparently in the WS data.

I dunno why some models and graphic effects are made and never used but as a DRK main, I really would have liked that red and silver Ragnarok clone.

Do we know if magic accuracy skill from the offhand is added? I don't remember any testing regarding this. If not then offhanding Trilling might be better than a capped Malevolence even on high content level things.

It is Fu move pretty sure most people can hit 99k Trueflight with sufficient buffs. Attempt this on Kei please. I've only manage ~30K-35K trueflights into 99k Lights. Wonder how high it can reach with gastra.

Hey, got a couple of quick questions if anyone can answer them. Thinking about playing Ranger, but unsure of what I need and if what I want to try is even remotely deemed viable.

Firstly, is wildfire ever really used or is trueflight pretty much always the superior option?

Secondly, are bows THAT much worse than guns? Last Stand is undoubtedly good, but I have the feeling Jishnu's Radiance should be able to do some decent numbers as well given you have the emp for it.

Thirdly, is Apex Arrow ever good? Maybe on lowbuff situations where attack matters?

Thanks for the answers in advance, appreciate it.

Edit: finally, is there an up to date rng spreadsheet I can use to test some of this out?

Wildfire can create double dark and is virtually hateless. Use it on something weak to fire to exploit it

Jisnus can be very very good actually. The issue is the inherent problem with bows on general, no good way to drop hate and continue dps. At least on gun you can downgrade to WF. But damage wise it's not bad with empy.

Apex sucks. You'd make the aeonic bow for the arrows I think. That's about it?

Trilling is only good if you at the soft cap of pretty much all buffs so thats cap mab agi then yes Trilling will win but then the issue comes in that you will get resisted alot more using a trilling over second malevolence Also for Gandiva users Gandiva under the right buffs can win the parce every time and really good for you to help your tank hold hate with decoy up Also Apex Arrow is Really good on Dyna Boss 2 since it ignores Def

Someone told me that the Pixie Hairpin translates into like 100Mab for dark WS.

How much Regular MAB is the weatherspoon ring?

Don't forget the ring and hairpin improve skillchain damage respectively if used during the closing ws, so you get an extra bonus there. Especially noticable when song true flight light on ou or kei

Question on Scout's Gorget, with Gastra AM3 would the Phys. Damage Limit be a solid tradeoff against Iskur on Midshot?

Less racc and stp but if your double/triple are buffed it should throw your damage up nicely (in theory). And would the +25 AGI be better on the neck for Trueflight against the 10 macc / mab on Sanctity or +13 on Baetyl?

I really suck at understanding all the PDIF stuff, especially when it comes to ranged attack. I feel like with Orion and Arcadian +3 pieces covering down on Racc you can switch up foods with with Minuet blow through attack cap easily to hit that threshold.

Am I misunderstanding something or is this the general feeling of the Scout's Gorget thus far?

It appears this could be a solid neckpiece for both pre and mid shot..

My initial thought before any testing on this is the following- Gastra needs as much STP as you can to get to Trueflight (and any TP overflow is just gravy for that weaponskill) as fast as possible. While you might notice a difference in your white damage, no other ranged weapon has such a disparity between TP phase/WS phase (maybe Death Penalty, but this is a Ranger Forum), and a little more on your crossbow bolt shots won't change this. You'd have to probably multiply the damage dealt by TP shots by a factor of 5 to come close to seeing something worth gearing for.

Now, I do think the JSE neck might have a role in Annihilator and Armageddon builds, both of which deal better base damage before AM, and will definitely deal a helluva lot more damage with the AM up over Gastraphetes.

In regards to "is 25 AGI worth more than 13 MAB"? (JSE+2 neck versus Baetyl Pendant) Its gonna depend a LOT on your current Trueflight Build. If your build is hurting for MAB, the Baetyl pendant should win out easily. Otherwise, you probably will see a slight boost with the AGI.

And most top-tier Rangers are actually hurting for MAB these days in their Trueflight builds with the introduction of AF+3 head and Relic+3 legs- two great WSD pieces but both have zero MAB. Our sets (best in slot that is) prior to the release of these pieces included Herculean head and legs augmented with MAB/macc and WSD, so the loss of those two pieces probably means a loss of around 40MAB to gain 12-16 WSD. A good trade, but it makes high MAB in the waist,ears,rings, and neck even more valuable.

I think an interesting debate will be once we see some fully augmented +2 Ranger Neckpieces and compare them against Fotia for Last Stand. That's some serious AGI to put into the number crunching.

Herc Feet I use to compensate for the lack of MAB on AF+3 head/Relic+3 legs.

Yeah that makes a lot of sense. Thanks for that! Look forward to see how the tests parse out on Last Stand with Anni. I'll play with it a bit too. I have a +1 but not a +2 as I usually just TF chain with SCH in certain Omen fights and Dynamis and come BLU or RUN for anything else.

I have gotten 34 on Fern before so I take it that it is 35 and not 30.
